Historical Traveler Reviews Harcourt Hotel Dublin

Harcourt hotel-mostly a gem

from

I do a lot of traveling back and forth between the USA and Ireland as I am currently completing my Ph.D. up in Belfast. As my flights are often early in the morning, I go to dublin to stay overnight, rest and start fresh in the morning. I have stayed at the Harcourt more 15 times over the past two years. I have always been quite pleased with the pleasant staff, the quality of accomodation, the service and especially the traditional music nightly in the dinner room. Raphy and his friends are just fabulous to listen to over a cool drink. The nightclub is next door and often hosts a number of brilliant Irish bands. (I saw the Dubliners there about a year ago. ) You are a short walk away from Grafton Street, St. Stephen's Green, great shopping and the Airbus to the Dublin Airport. I must say that I have been quite pleased with my experiences at the Harcourt. There was one time when my fella came over from the US to visit. (that's always the time something goes wrong though. I was bragging about how nice the Harcourt was and our room had numberous things wrong with it. (ie-the tv remote didn't work, a burnt out light bulb, a broken hair dryer) but all we had to do was ring down to the desk and these things were quickly corrected. The place is clean and the staff pleasant and they leave out a couple of complimentary bath accessories in case you forget something. The last couple of times I was down there was street work going on out front, but the end result will be a Dublin Tram (well worth the effort). Without reserve, I would reccomend this hotel as a quality hotel within the travel concious budget.

Hotel was great

Fantastic place!!

from

This hotel was brilliant the rooms were lovely with comfortable beds, the bar and club joined onto the hotel were a great night out allowing you to stay in the same building as your bed! The barstaff were all friendly and helpful advising places to eat out in the city. Very enjoyable stay

Horrible Hotel

from

This hotel is a joke. The street is torn up outside the hotel and there is no parking at all. The outside noise at night prevents sleeping. The staff is not at all helpful and the rooms are marginal. Stay away!

Harcourt-No way!

from

Stayed at this hotel in April 2003 and found noisy and worn. Major street excavation directly in front the hotel was bad. Pub in hotel noisy and drunken guests compound the problems. The staff was not accomodating. Beds were tiny and rooms old and worn. Stay away from this hotel.

Its not bad

from

The Harcourt was exactly what we were looking for : affordable with a good location. The rooms are on the small side, and if you are on the first floor, the music from the downstairs pub may keep you awake at night.

There is a fun disco in the basement!

Think these other reviews are very unfair....

from

On a recent trip to Dublin i was very impreseed with the harcourt hotel. The staff were pleasant and helpful, the rooms were clean and bright. For the money what do you want?Overall a very good hotel, try staying at Jurys Custom Quay because that is bad!

Very Disappointing

from

Very disappointing. My wife booked on line and the room we got almost needed the beds moved before you could open the door. Breakfast was medium but the music was good. Maybe they should close the hotel and just keep the pub

No breakfast, cold cod dinner, no sleep

from

We booked on line. After arrival, we were told our rates were too cheap to include breakfast. The cod we ordered for the evening meal came lukewarm on cold plates. (Sorry, maybe next door can satisfy you.) The lovely large room with fireplace was connecting to another guest room and near the entry doors, cutting in to quiet time and sleep. The reading lights over one 'Murphy' bed did not work. Some ceiling lights were missing or dangling. The beds were comfortable. There was lots of hot water and good water pressure. TV reception was fuzzy.

No sleep

from

If it's the ability to sleep you look for when choosing a hotel then I would advise against this one. We chose this hotel as it was economical and the rooms were of a reasonable standard, however our stay there was a stressful one. Noise from industrial extractor fans, very late stag nights and inconsiderate, early rising, cleaning staff prevented any sleep. When approached reception were unresponsive, disorganised and even cheeky, suggesting that we should have specified in advance if we required a 'quiet room'. If you are considering a weekend in Dublin and want a room in which to sleep, then I would advise against the Harcourt Hotel.

Arrival in Dublin!

First, the layover at JFK was filled with catching up and horror stories of medical school from Bryan. Red-eye airplane flights are pretty terrible. After minutes of glorious tossing and turning sleep, we all awake around 3am (800 Ireland time) to an outstanding breakfast of just plain yogurt. We eagerly await the countdown on the tv screen and …

Second day

A travel blog entry by oydaftgoo on Sep 04, 2014

Waking up here was nice. The bed is good. I keep almost falling off because I'm not sleeping to the side I'm used to. Why haven't I cried over Pete? Why aren't I perishing of pain? These girls talk too much. The only thing I want to do drunk is dance and neck with that NuBar boy. Dublin seems okay. Still more interested in nature spots. ...

Unfortunately for me the wifi in my hostel is so horrendous (I've used better dial-up) that after an hour and a half of attempting making bookings I gave up and had dinner and went to bed. For the final day of this blog, today, I went on the free day trip provided by the hostel if you book 2 or more nights stay (this was one of the ...

Ireland, day two

... They went on to explain that Irish people look down on you more for NOT participating than they do if you participate, but your voice maybe makes the paint peel. Then they said "ok, now let's go! Share some songs with us!" The young Swiss man shared a song of his, which was very short. And then suddenly, I got the idea to share one as well. (Damn you, beer.) In 1st grade, we sang a song about the Titanic. It is really a story (a rather harsh one!) and I immediately knew it'd be ...

Notes on a Day: ( things people said and did as I remember them because this is my blog aka I am God)The Book of Kells: - contains: the Concordance of the 4 Gospels and as many drawings as there are words- might not actually be Irish! There is much contention around this issue and evidence that the book is from Iona, an island off the coast of Scotland- the book was stolen in 1007 and was buried in the dirt ...
